This game allows for the development of logical-mathematical thinking by classifying, grouping and matching elements though colours and/or shapes. These actions improve hand-eye coordination and motor skills. The rings become a material which can be used to thread, pile up and create different games. The Nins can be used as a symbolic game, to create stories and small worlds. In addition to the first pedagogical proposal, this material can be seen from a versatile perspective, which allows for it to be used in a broad number of ways. The adaptability of these materials contribute to creative and divergent ways of thinking.
Grapat toys are designed to stir the imagination, to allow the child to be creative in her own way. There is no right way to play with the toys: just go where the fancy takes you!
The wood used for Grapat toys (primarily beech and birch) comes from sustainable forests. Wood is the source that inspires the workshop daily. It is robust, soft and hard, it is warm, it sounds good and it smells good.
The dyes are based on water and non-toxic: they allow the grain of the wood to show through, bringing children into closer contact with nature. The finishes are made with waxes and oils of vegetable origin. The oils can have a strong aroma at first, but it loses it within a few days. Each piece is unique, each one is painted by hand. And natural imperfections are recognized as being part of the natural wood: it is beautiful and makes the material even more valuable.
For care or cleaning of the parts, wipe with a damp cloth and dry immediately.
